the newest cluvfy you find here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/products/clustering/downloads/cvu-download-homepage-099973.html
No need to install 126.96.36.199 to get it... (but you will have to install it anyway).
Running cluvfy is risk free, since it only checks the status.
If you install 188.8.131.52 it will automatically run cluvfy in the installer as well, so why not check it first in preparation...
and follow the links to always get the newest one. There might be a newer doc, but from the look it looks o.k.
If you have access to Oracle support I will suggest you read document ID 837570.1 and if possible carry out the upgrade in a RAC test environment before you do the same in your production environment.
Thank you very much for the reply.
I do not see CLUSTER VERIFY UTILITY download option from the link you gave me, only readme is available for download.
What I understand from you reply is:
Before I install new cluster 184.108.40.206 home, I can directly download cluvfy utility and run it to prepare in advance? destination_home of new cluster will be given just by assuming?
Unfortunately, there is no TEST RAC system, test systems from these dbs are only single instance. Therefore, I have to perform upgrade directly on PROD RAC DBs.

Thank you for the reply.
I am getting the following error. I think missing some little thing but mind stuck. Could you please suggest ? some path is wrong or what? I have downloaded cluster verify utility, unzipped on the db machine in the directory cv, and run but in vain. Also, run from the GRID_HOME/bin but getting the same error: -bash: ./runcluvfy.sh: No such file or directory

Thank you once again.
I tried it in different ways but then I realized that this script does not exist any where, therefore I downloaded and unzipped p10404530_112030_Linux-x86-64_3of7.zip (for installing GI), just for seeing it at the moment under user oracle, and its running "at the moment".
It would be interesting to see the results of cluvfy. I hope no errors come, and will post the result as soon as it is done.
I have to stop this utility, suddenly I noticed that as the utility was running and running, meanwhile Listener died. I had to restart the listener. Dont know should I continue with it again or not..
You said, its risk free,,true but Listener went down after the command was running from the last 5,7 minutes, and dont know what else can go down :(
this really is strange, since I always let cluvfy run.
And by the way with 11.2. clusterware will automatically call cluvfy every 6 hours. So it definitely does not break anything.
I really wonder, what happened there, as to normally cluvfy finishes in less than 5 minutes....
As what user did you try to execute cluvfy?
I run it with user ORACLE, may be this was the mistake or what. As user grid also exist as can be seen from my above posts. I try to create with directory with user grid initially, but I configuration of the machine (I have not set it up) I was not able to mkdir with user grid ...owner is root there I think.

It means it was in hanging state in my case, isnt it?
One more thought: At following location I unzipped 30f7 installation file and then used ./runcluvf.sh -- Is it okay? or something need to be install first or so?? confused ...

Just one more thought for tomorrow before leaving for today.
As you suggested in one of your post above. That I may run it from bin but with cluvfy as it is shown be following. It is a cluster verify utility, opposite to the procedure I adopted above, by unzipping 3of7 (new 220.127.116.11) and running utility from there but hanged unfortunately and listener died in the PROD environment...
grid@db1 [ee]: /home/grid/cv/bin > ls -l
-rwxrwxr-x 1 grid oinstall 8553 2012-02-07 09:08 cluvfy*

cluvfy stage -pre crsinst -upgrade -n db1,db2 -rolling -src_crshome /oracle/app/11.2.0/grid -dest_crshome /oracle/app/grid/18.104.22.168/grid -dest_version 22.214.171.124.0 worked for me from the cluster verify downloaded/bin... Than you for your suggestion.
I have resolved one other cluvfy failure was something ntp related... Only PATCH 9413827 is missing, any suggestion please? Do I need to apply this patch directly or some other PSU which will cover this patch?
Check for Oracle patch "9413827" in home "/oracle/app/11.2.0/grid" failed
Check failed on nodes:
first of all, the installation/cluvfy check should be done with the user, who has installed the 10.2 grid software.
If that was grid user, then you should run cluvfy with that user, if it was oracle use oracle. But since 10.2 was not named grid infrastructure but clusterware I strongly doubt that it was the grid user who installed 10.2. More likely it was oracle or if at all crs. BTW: It is not possible to change the owning users when upgrading.
So I assume you have to use the user ORACLE.
Furthermore before running the new cluvfy, check if the old clufvy (in the old clusterware 10.2 home) works correctly, by invoking it with cluvfy -post crsinst (and setting your environment to the 10.2 clusterware home).
If this does not run through either, then you have a general environment problem on your computer.
For running cluvfy from the 11.2. home, you should not have any ORACLE variables set. If you envocing oracle user has env variables set (TNS_ALIAS etc.) this might get cluvfy a little bit disoriented. Very important: NEVER set CRS_HOME.
So let me know the outcome of:
a.) RUN cluvfy from 10.2 clusterware home with the owner owning the clusterware. (Check your ENV)
b.) RUN cluvfy from the download you did (the one from 126.96.36.199 DVD/image might be older) then the one downloaded from OTN. You definitely find the cluvfy executable in there. Make sure you run it as the same user as used for a.) and unset every ORACLE variable.
c.) You might also want to have a search in MOS for racchk utility, which actually does a health check of your actual system (10.2), before upgrading.
Thanks a lot for the detail reply.
Have you seen my above post?
On the machine, there are two user of course, GRID and ORACLE, GI is 188.8.131.52 version and DB is 10.2.0.4 with user ORACLE.
I run cluvfy from the downloaded version from OTN you suggested. Created one directory at /home/grid and run the cluvfy (complete command in the above post) from this bin with the user GRID.
I hope it should be okay now, or you still doubt and wants the outcome of your queries?
Thanks and regards
